When running under systemd control, sfptpd should not be explicitly run as a daemon. So, the following option should not be enabled in the sfptpd config file:

# Configure sfptpd to run as a daemon
# daemon

If this option is enabled, systemd will identify sfptpd as a daemon not under its control and it will be terminated.

This becomes apparent if the sfptpd service terminates/exits very quickly after startup without any apparent cause.
